My Jennifer maried into it. After seven years she is coming around though.

True stories...

One night when we had been dating about a month, I picked her up and of course there was a bootleg playing in the car - a 1970 show I think. Anyway, when they started into "It's A Man's World" her comment was (and I quote) "Oh no, don't tell me they're going to ruin another song."

Last year her cat of 13 years passed away one Sunday morning. I buried her out back in the garden during a light rain. It tore me up and I did what I usually do to morn a passing - came in the house and played "Box Of Rain" from American Beauty. Really loud. A few days later we were talking about her cat and she thanked me. She said that song put into words how she felt at that moment. She said "I think I am beginning to understand."

Like I said before she is coming around.
